To confuse things further, the deployment fitness test will either be the LBM (13 km BFT) for non-Army, or the FORCE Combat test for Army types
"The higher the rank, the more necessary it is that boldness should be accompanied by a reflective mind....for with increase in rank it becomes always a matter less of self-sacrifice and more a matter of the preservation of others, and the good of the whole."

Clearly, CJOC needs another GOFO to sort this out - call him DCOS Fitness or something...

... wait ... so the IBTS  requirement to deploy on an operation is decided by colour of uniform and not by the environment of the operation? A green cook will have to to Force Combat to deploy on a ship, and a blue clerk will do the old LBM to deploy on a Land Op?

So where do I get issued my gear to actually do the LBM?

And then I turn it right back in again to...hop on a ship for 6 months?  :orly:

The article is wrong.  This test replaces the Army IBTS requirement to do a LBM.
